Illegal Marijuana Use
Representation from a Palm Beach Drug Crime Attorney
In a study by the National Survey on Drug use and Health, marijuana has been declared as the most commonly used drug in the country. In an effort to halt to the widespread use and effects of marijuana, increasing legal measures have been enforced throughout the U.S., and Florida is no exception.
Individuals who are found in possession of marijuana could face a mandatory sentence of as little as 3 years in prison and $25,000 in fines and as much as 15 years in prison and $200,000 in fines. For those who are found to be
distributing or transporting marijuana, the charges could be even higher.
The amount of the drug that is present in your system or on your person at the time of your arrest will weigh heavily in the ultimate conviction made. If certain drug paraphernalia is present or the number of plants is deemed excessive, you could be facing charges on suspicion of possession for sale.
